U.S. Government Awards Missouri Researcher $4.3 Million to Study Sickle Cell in Teens, Adults

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded a $4.3 million research grant to Dr. Allison A. King of the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis to support her research on sickle cell disease, with particular focus on teens and adults.

The grant — believed to be the first of its kind from the NIH — will let King continue and expand her study as part of an initiative being coordinated by the agency’s National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. The NHLBI has now awarded $36 million in sickle cell research grants to investigators at eight sites.
